saturday and sunday. have a great weekend. >>> hello, everybody, thank you very much for joining us. i'm garry tuchman in for fredericka whitfield. these are to the stories we are watching. the goal of a new piece initiative underway right now in egypt. an egyptian military official says an israeli special envoy has just arrived for talks. israel targeted hamas government buildings, homes and a media center. six journalists were injured when that media was hilt twice. let's go to the israeli border at gaza. >> reporter: there's actually an air alarm in a town a couple of miles away from here. we have heard some thumping impacts there, just a couple of minutes before we went live on this report. tonight we ourselves have had to take cover twice when there were rockets being fired. it really has been quite a busy day, quite an intense day for the people here as well. they have been having to take cover quite a number of times. we have seen, i would say at least a dozen air alarms. also we were out in an open field and we had to take shelter there several times as well. it seems as though
. no one wants to be out at night in particular. don? >> you can absolutely bet that. sara, take us to the streets and what's happening there. people are interested in what's going on in gaza. and we keep saying people are being injured, people are dying. and we should say, it's not just israelis, obviously. palestinians are dying as well. and i'm hearing a lot of people saying we want to hear more about these people and what exactly -- what's happening to them. >> reporter: sure. men, women, children, certainly some militants have been taken out and there have been a few commanders of the hamas military wing. and isra and israel saying they're looking for top brass of the hamas government, as well. and that's why you hear those drones. they're trying to do these targeted strikes. in some cases they have. in other cases, people on the ground are saying they have either missed or targeted an area where there are so many people that there are a lot of people getting hurt, a lot of people getting killed. we do know that the hospitals have been dealing with men, women and children. and
us. remember, you can follow what's going on in "the situation room" on twitter. you can always tweet me, @wolf blitzer. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room." the news continues next on cnn. >>> hello, everyone. i'm don lemon. as you know, it is the middle of the night along israel's border with gaza, but this war won't pause for nightfall, not with 30,000 israeli troops mobilizing for battle. the air war is bad enough. israelis wait to hear this sound. a warning that a rocket is only seconds away. the israeli defense force is hitting back with technology that hamas could only dream of. this idf video shows a missile hitting the home of an hamas leader. the military says the secondary explosions are proof of explosives stored in the building. hamas is claiming its own trophy. the group's military wing says it has shot down a military f-16 and damaged two other israeli aircraft. israel denies losing any aircraft. egypt is trying to stop this war before it is too late. cairo's intelligence chief is spearheading talks to end the violence. but on the border, peace looks like an
prospect. our senior international correspondent, ben wedeman joins us now between the border between israel and gaza. ben, ground war, are we about to witness that? >> reporter: i don't think immediately, don. i think there's still time needed to get the israeli military ready for a ground invasion. keep in mind that gaza is an area just twice the size of washington, d.c., with a population of 1.5 million people. any military force that goes in there has got to contend with the possibility of a lot of civilian casualties and a fair amount of resistance, from hamas fighters. now, what we're seeing here on the border are intense preparations, all night long. we've been watching as big trucks carrying tanks, carrying armored personnel carriers have been going up and down the road. a lot of soldiers in this area. the israeli government has yet to say when or if they would finally make a decision regarding a ground invasion into gaza. and at the same time, as you've mentioned, there are intense efforts underway by the egyptians, among others, to try to head off a possibility of an escalat
't use these anti-missile systems if it looks like the missile is going to go into a nonpopulate area, a rural area or what have you. it seems to be working for the israeli military. i just spoke with a member of the israel defense forces say it's working very well, the way most of the experts in israel thought it would work. it's a joint military operation, the creation of this system. there were some intense shelling going on today as well rocks coming in from gaza. i don't think there were any casualties today on the part of the israelis. there was nobody who was killed, but the israelis were deeply worried every time one of those sirens goes off, people scrambled, especially those in town, it's obviously a very, very major, major target, a source of terror if you will for hundreds of thousands of israelis. >> these are rockets being fired. there's a new key that's under way in egypt. this could be very crucial, very important. now the secretary general ban ki-moon is in cairo. so there's a lot of pressure, the u.s. would certainly like to see a cessation of hostilities, the israel
you can check her out on line, follow her on twitter, even like us on facebook. i'm dr. sanjay gupta. see you back here next week. >>> you are in the cnn newsroom. i'm gary tuchman in for frederick i when ricka whitfiel. no relief in sight. that's what the gaza strip and israel are fracing right now. this is how is looked and sounded. [ boom noise ] >> that was a target israeli strike on media centers in gaza. we're live in gaza. just after midnight there right now. ben, thanks for joining us. it is said they have killed one of israel's leading experts. >> israeli defense forces are claiming they killed in that strike which left 11 people dead, including women and children, that they killed a man who they say is one of the senior commanders of hamas' rocket unit. however, we have been speaking to our sources here. we spoke to people in the neighborhood, and frankly they've never heard of this man. so it's not altogether clear whether this man had anything to do with or who he is, even, at all. so it's all rather confusing at the moment. what does seem to be clear is that israel
, sara. every u.s. president hopes to be the one that ends the israeli/palestinian crisis. but peace has rarely seemed less likely. earlier i spoke with a senior fellow at the hoover institution. he singled out the obama administration for what he calls its indifference. >> we have to go back and re-examine the diplomatic setting, if you will. people will be pushed to say, we can't afford to ignore this region. we can't afford to ignore this conflict because we look back on the last four years and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what's happening on the west bank in gaza. and i think there will be pressure. there will be pressure from egypt, from turkey. there will be quaepressure from qatar. these are the places that are most sympathetic to hamas. >> discussing the u.s. response to the israeli/palestinian crisis. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. the new reality and a rude awakening for the gop. get with it or keep losing. >>> the new faces of congress, gay, bisexual hindu. meet those making capi
we use the word sensation. >> the fight is almost over. i said, we are going to finish this fight in one round. >> he is going straight back, knock down of the first round. he caught marquez going down and i'm not sure juan manual will be able to get up. >> i thought i got him in the first round. but i was surprised of his toughness. >> cortez is letting the fight continue. >> for the referee, it should not be a numbers game unless he is counting to ten. three knock downs is usually when a referee will step in and stop the mayhem. but it's also knowing who the fighters are. looking into the fight's eyes and cortez did a major league job of understanding the situation. [ bell ringing ] >> what happened in the second round, redefined a fighter. i think marquez intuitively absorbed the reality that he had to make this stand. it would define him forever. >> marquez is feeling his way back into the fight. >> marquez fighting more of the kind of fight now we anticipated at the start. >> and i remember the rest of the night was being very frustrated because many is looking for the big la
